On arrival the incident commander reported that the kitchen was heavily smoke logged. An ambulance was called for a 27 year-old woman suffering the effects of smoke inhalation.

Wearing breathing apparatus and using one hose reel jet, crews had extinguished the fire by just after 7am.

An ambulance spokesman said: “The woman was assessed for smoke inhalation but left at the scene in the care of family.”
